DHL Supply Chain has announced it is building a $100 million distribution park on a 125 acre site in Charleston, South Carolina.
The new DHL Commerce Park is to have three buildings with a combined area of 1.7 million square feet. The first unit is to be completed in Q1 of 2020.
“We have seen significant growth in this area of the country and customers are even asking us to evaluate opportunities in South Carolina specifically,” said Steve Hess, vice president, real estate development. “With that in mind, we got ahead of the curve to offer premier facilities in one of the hottest emerging markets in the country.”
“South Carolina Ports Authority is seeing significant distribution centre and warehousing activity in our region, driven by port users who rely on our marine and inland facilities to handle growing import volumes bound for consumers across the Southeast,” said Jim Newsome, SCPA president and CEO.
“DHL Supply Chain will play an important role in supporting the logistics needs of multiple port-related business segments, and we look forward to the opening of their new facility.”
